Mushfiqur was also under ACSU investigation
Bangladesh’s ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan got a proposal from a fixer two years ago. But he didn’t inform it to the International Cricket Council (ICC). Along with Shakib, Mushfiqur Rahim’s name was also in the list of The anti-corruption and Security Unit (ACSU).
Tenson looming around and dark clouds hovering around Bangladesh cricket as Shakib Al Hasan is most likely to face a ban ahead of the India tour. It was back in 2008 when the all-rounder received a proposal from a fixer and he informed it to a member of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The same incident happened once again two years ago, but this time Shakib didn’t inform and he’s now likely to face a very strict punishment for it.
According to ICC’s Anti Corruption Code act 2.4.4: Failing to disclose to the ACU (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations received by the Participant to engage in Corrupt Conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.
If a player breaches this code, a minimum of 6-month and a maximum of five years ban can be sanctioned. Shakib’s fate now lies on ICC and the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) are awaiting a mail from the cricket board for the next update about the all-rounder.
Meanwhile, another experienced campaigner Mushfiqur’s name is also in the list of ACSU. But they didn’t get anything after tracking Mushfiqur’s call list. It has been also confirmed from ACSU that Mushfiqur didn’t get any call like Shakib from the fixer.
BCB will announce the revised T20I squad for the three-match series against India on Tuesday. They are currently waiting for ICC’s mail to know about Shakib’s situation before releasing the squad.
